I spent today having some fun and thinking. I tend to craft while I think, so here’s what I did while I considered how to do my friend Joy’s harp cards.
This was the first one I did. I had a basic idea of what I wanted to do, which it doesn’t look incredibly like, but I still like it. This one had to use something that would have been trash, which was the fruit bag I used to highlight. It also had to follow a tic-tac-toe board and I chose blue and red for the colors, embossing (dry and heat) and flower images (embossed). I had planned to do 3 flowers along the side to go with the MFP SpeedyTV Sketch With a Twist challenge, but decided to do 3 pearls up in the corner of the small piece and leave it a bit more CAS.
This one was super fun. It took some time, but I really like how it turned out. It is for a friend of mine. The thing about this one is that it is tall and skinny (3-3/8″ x 6-1/4″), which was interesting to do.
I wanted to use the rooster paper for a friend of mine, and used Perfect Pearls in 3 different colors on the rooster image, as well as a Sakura Stardust pen for the sun rays on the corner. Not sure it’s quite what I want for my friend (a female), but my husband thought it would be perfect for a guy.
This last one was super quick and easy. The challenge for MFP SpeedyTV’s Tutorial Time was to make a treat topper. I changed mine up a bit and did it for dog treats, as I really wanted to use my dog stamp set. I also used brads to hold it closed rather than twine. It works as it is a zip lock bag.
Now, have I figured out quite how to do Joy’s harp cards? Nope, but my embossing stuff is still out and I plan to use it. I do have some fun ideas to try.
Thanks for spending some time with me today!
